I'm delighted to recommend Nicky Leach as the finest editor it has been my privilege to work with. She was hired by my publisher, Findhorn Press, to edit Princes, Frogs, and Ugly Sisters: The Healing Power of the Grimm Brothers Tales (2010), and she proved herself again and again to be an expert in her craft. Not only was she detailed and precise in the overall editing, but through her insight, careful understanding, and sensitivity she was able to identify sections where the original material did not flow properly. Her genius lies in being able to straighten out writing that has become entangled, and to make alterations that result in far better prose. Some editors will simply correct typos; Nicky will straighten out knotted sections so that the writing becomes clearer, better, more persuasive. In addition it's also worth stating that she is very quick. There is no waiting around for returned copy, and no long email-silence to drive a writer mad. If you need a thoroughly professional, prompt, precise editor who has world-class abilities, then Nicky Leach is the person to contact. I'm looking forward to working with her on many more projects.
